Take the Step



[Jesus] said, Come! So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and he came toward Jesus.
                                                                                                                          
                                                                              Matthew 14:29






Perhaps the boat you need to get out of is your past. Sometimes we get so addicted to murmuring about the past and blaming the past for everything that we miss our whole future. You’re not going to enjoy your future, and you’re not going to enjoy your right now, if all you can do is be guilty and ashamed and afraid of your past. What is it that you’re afraid somebody will find out that will cause them to turn against you?
Anything you have to keep hidden has power over you. You are not going to ever be free if you just keep running away from your past. You have to confront and deal with it. No one is going to come along and do it for you. Jesus is calling you out of the boat. God has given you His power, and His Spirit is dwelling in you, so you can do things that are hard to do. You can do anything you need to do. He isn’t going to get into your boat and make you feel better. Get it out of your system. Get out of the boat of your past.


____________
Lord, I will not stay stuck in my past. By your grace, the past has been forgiven, and I have a new life in You. If there’s something in my past that needs to be dealt with, show me how to do it in the right way. Amen.

This blog post has been festering lately.  I have lots to say, but don't know how to say it.  Mainly, I want to say it with grace and conviction.  I worry that I won't do that properly, but I feel like this needs to be shared.


I don't support teen dating because I was a teen dater.
I wish it …

Self-Confidence

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

Self-Confident: believe in oneself or one's own abilities
In one's own powers, judgment, etc.


In everything we do, we should have confidence in ourselves. God builds us up to love ourselves and to know that everything we do He gave us the gift to do it. Don’t allow anyone to put you down and say things like, you will never accomplish anything in life. Or you are just wasting your time. Nobody is going to see any good in that. In spite of what people say about you, you need to know you can do anything you set your mind to do. Have confidence in yourself and knock down all the negative things that come your way.

Hold your head up high and allow people to see what God sees in you. Don’t walk in fear wondering about where life will take you in the future. Live for today and God will help you with the rest. Treat yourself right and own your lif…
